Several weeks ago Amy Johnson Crow of No Story Too Small blog issued the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge.
As you can see, I am a little late to the party. I took an extended break from research over the holiday season. Thank you to Amy, for supplying a great way to get back into the genealogy saddle.
Why accept the challenge? This is a lovely way to share our family history and possibly discover a new cousin.
What do I hope to accomplish with these posts? To understand our ancestors in a more personal way. Not just when born, died and buried. Make them come to life for anyone reading the blog.
Ultimate goal is to create a lasting piece of family history for my grandchildren. With that in mind, I will post about the entire extended family. Included will be my husband, son-in-law and daughter-in-law.
When the challenge ends? I plan to create a booklet with all the wonderful family stories.
Yes folks, I am so excited!
